How and Why to Become a Member of Young Living

I am so thankful that I learned about Young Living Essential Oils. I use them literally every single day in our home, for my entire family, for a variety of things including cuts and scrapes, upset tummies and headaches, plus house cleaning and laundry!

Although I have been into a naturally health-focused lifestyle for a number of years, I never incorporated Essential Oils until recently. My first introduction (and then my second, and third, and fourth—by different people) was to the Young Living brand of oils, and although I did experiment slightly with inexpensive health food store labels, it was easy for me to choose Young Living when it was time for me to decide to use them as a regular part of health for my entire family.  Why? Well, I believe in Young Living’s integrity, and in their commitment to provide the best possible 100% therapeutic grade essential oils. I am very thankful that I have chosen this particular essential oil company for my family.

As a Doctor of Chiropractic, I have a respect for the body and an understanding and belief that our bodies were made to be healthy, and that all we must do is give them what they need (and take away what might be interfering). Although I am not actively practicing chiropractic right now, I still have a love for sharing and talking about natural remedies and tips for keeping families healthy. In this way, essential oils fit right in, and I want to share them!

Young Living is different in that it is not sold in a store. You must purchase your oils through a “distributor”, AKA “wholesale member,” or you may become a wholesale member yourself. Why would anyone want to do that? Well….when you  join Young Living, you receive wholesale prices. There are no monthly order requirements or annual fees. Here are some frequently asked questions that may help clarify some things for you…

Young Living Wholesale Member FAQs

Why Should I Become A Wholesale Member/Distributor?

Great question! This is a fabulous option that provides you 24% off retail price! As you use the oils and you share your testimonials with friends and family, you have the OPTION (no pressure) of earning commissions when others join and purchase Young Living oils. Everybody wins. And, through the Essential Rewards program, you have the opportunity to earn FREE oils, pay reduced shipping, and get that optional commission check.

Is there a monthly order minimum?

NO. You can just order what you need when you need it.

What kit do you recommend that I get started with?

I highly recommend the Premium Kit (see the graphic below!) because it gets you the most bang for your buck! You receive the 10 Everyday OilsPLUS a 5ml Stress Away, PLUS a Roller Fitment which allows you to make any essential oil bottle a roll-on, PLUS 10 popular essential oils samples, PLUS 2 packs of Ningxia Red, PLUS a Home Diffuser!! That’s over $300 value for $150! Amazing! It’s the best deal of its kind.


I just really want to use oils myself. Do I have to sell Young Living products to be a distributor?

NO. There is NO obligation to sell oils when you join as a wholesale member/distributor. However, if you decide you enjoy the products too much to keep them a secret, you can jump right in and receive benefits when you decide to share.

Are there any monthly order requirements?

There are NO monthly minimum orders required. There is one 50 PV minimum order per year, just to keep your account active. If you miss that deadline, it is easy to reactivate your account by calling Young Living Customer care and placing an order with them. Simple.

If someone wants to join Young Living through me, what do I need to do?

When you join, you will be assigned your own member number to give to your friends and family who are interested in joining as well.

Is there a way to save even more money?

Yes! The Essential Rewards program offers reduced shipping, credit for free oils & more! Plus each month there are great promotions for free oils when you place an Essential Rewards order. I love free stuff!

What do I need to do to become a wholesale member of Young Living Essential Oils?

Just follow the directions below.

What happens after I join through you? How will I know what to do next, and what if I have questions?

One of the things I have enjoyed best about being a member of Young Living is that I have an incredible support group. When I have a question about what oil is recommended for (fill in the blank here), or if I just want to see how other people have been using their oils, I simply get onto the private Facebook group and ask around. There are archives to search, and a wealth of information there from caring people who all want to help me. When you join through me, I am there to guide you and to connect you to all of my resources as well. Our community is amazing, and I am sure that you would be glad to be a part of it!

Step by step instructions on how to join Young Living Essential Oils:

1. Click here to begin the enrollment process. It’s super easy!

2. Wholesale member will already be selected, and I strongly encourage you not to switch it over to Retail Customer. Again, this is the wholesale membership. You are NOT AGREEING TO SELL or distribute anything. I promise! If you select “Retail Customer” you will not receive wholesale pricing and will pay retail which is 24% more than wholesale.

3. Make sure my member number (1442019) is in the Sponsor ID and Enroller ID spots.

4. PLEASE be sure to include your email address. If you don’t, I have no way to invite you to the Shepard’s Gate Facebook support group (if you aren’t on Facebook, I strongly urge you to join now) and I can’t support you as you begin your journey with essential oils. This support is vital for empowering you to use the oils to the fullest.

5. Choose the kit you want. (I do recommend the Premium Kit.) Then proceed to check out. You can skip the Essential Rewards part for now unless you would like to join ER right away. I do recommend joining ER within a month or two at the latest, so that you can focus on replenishing and trying new oils regularly, and not needing to start all over again if you completely deplete your cabinet. The Premium Kit starts you off with a good foundation, you want to keep it strong!

6. That’s it! Your oils will be on their way to your doorstep!
